Editorial Reviews


Let Me Open You a Swan brims with intellect and artistry. In "The Migraine's Art" she writes "harried by heaven's hurt.../the fox is out and bells are tolling fire/or priests,/their knuckles a nick in my skull." --Lynn Emanuel

Deborah Bogen...sees clearly into the past with a fierce imagination that brings forward the body's cargo...her endings turn us both inward and outward.. --Christopher Buckley

What we have in Deborah Bogen's Let Me Open You a Swan is sublime poetry, the rare gift of a terrifying look into the shaping of a warrior poet and her work. --Michelle MItchell-Foust

More About the Author

ALL PROCEEDS FROM "The Witch of Leper Cove" benefit Crohn's research.

Deborah Bogen is a poet and a novelist. Her poetry books, Landscape with Silos; Let Me Open You a Swan; and Living by the Children's Cemetery are all prize winners. Her new book THE WITCH OF LEPER COVE is YA novel set in 13th Century England.

Bogen grew up in Montana and North Dakota. At 15 she moved to San Francisco where she was exposed to a lively art scene that was engaged with both the personal and the political.

Her writing for young adults does the same. Whether you want to call it medieval history or a coming-of age story, or just a terrific adventure, THE WYCH OF LEPYR COVE appeals not only to teenagers, but to 5th graders and 70 year-olds.

Bogen thinks teenagers are smart and truly interested in the world and its history. She also thinks learning about that is the most fun when it's told in an exciting story of events that no doubt really did occur in the life of someone. In The Witch of Leper Cove she has used her fascination with all things medieval to explore the ways young people can affect their own life circumstances.
